Please have your Access Pass available (printed copy or via phone/tablet) when visiting Ghost Mushroom Lane, for likely inspection by a Forest Ranger. Ghost Mushroom Lane is open to the public from 4pm to midnight every night during the season. The site is closed during the day and is monitored 24/7.
Ghost Mushroom Lane offers a series of walking trails that are established in pine forest just off the laneway during the annual mushroom season. The Fairy Tale Hollow, Fungi Hunter Alley, Ghostly Gully and the Neon Forest trails have been marked out in known mushroom hot-spots, helping visitors find their way in the dark. The location of these walks will change throughout the season as mushroom colonies die off and others emerge. Please see map and signage onsite.
The lane is located within a known mushroom breeding ground, among commercial pine forest near Glencoe just 16km from Mount Gambier. We recommend visitors bring warm clothes, sensible shoes, a torch and umbrella.
For the enjoyment of others, please leave the mushrooms exactly as you found them. The chemical in the mushroom responsible for the glow can be poisonous, causing cramps and vomiting if ingested. Accidental touching is not harmful.
Please observe the conditions of entry to the forest and take care while walking on uneven ground in the dark.
Ghost Mushroom Lane is not suitable for buses, caravans or trailers. Please contact ForestrySA for more information.
Visiting for the purpose of camping is not permitted at Ghost Mushroom Lane.
